In order to boost the academia-industry marketing channel, Prof. Walter Chen, Vice President of China Medical University (CMU), and Mr. Ching-feng Tseng, Chairman of West Lake Resortopia have discussed the development of a strategic alliance. A plan has been made to introduce quality products developed through CMU academia-industry research to the tourist attraction and recreational resort at West Lake Resortopia, so that local and overseas travelers may have the benefit of purchasing these items while making tour. West Lake Resortopia, in reciprocation. will provide CMU teachers and students food and beverage services for their meetings and offer event arrangement services and healthy life program during leisure outings or gatherings.

Even on Lantern Festival, Prof. Walter Chen and Mr. Ching-feng Tseng were still working hard on their own university and business tasks respectively. Mr. Tseng then invited Prof. and Mrs. Chen to the Sanyi West Lake Resortopia in Miaoli and escorted them in person throughout the resort, explaining the various facilities including the dome-shape multi-function conference room, Sheng-en grocery store, Hakka creative store, theme commodities hall, etc. Based on the win-win situation in value-added academia-industry interaction, the two parties signed a MOU for academia-industry cooperation on research and development of products that would be put on shelves for sale preferentially in the resort’s grocery store.
